Apple Releases QuickTime 7.6.9 Security Update

Apple has released QuickTime 7.6.9 for Leopard 10.5.8 and Windows (XP,V,7), patching a number of vulnerabilities including several that were fixed in the recent 10.6.5 update.

The vulnerabilities include improper handling of JP2, AVI, MPEG, Flashpix, GIF, PICT, and QTVR files. Viewing maliciously-crafted files can lead to remote code execution in some cases.

QuickTime definitely needs more strengthening. Leopard and Windows users, go forth and patch!
